Facebook for the Macabre

by V. L. Craven

If your Facebook newsfeed is a little boring or, Heaven forfend, cheerful, then like a few of these pages and gloom that thing up.

Websites

  • The Autodidact in the Attic : The Facebook page for this site, where I post all sorts of extra macabre things that don’t necessarily warrant their own blog posts.
  • Confessions of a Funeral Director : The FB page of writer Caleb Wilde , a 6th generation licenced funeral director and embalmer. Loads of funeral-based information, humour and images. (Hearses and coffins and caskets, oh my!)
  • The Morthouse : Skeletons, mummies, bog bodies, exhumations. The dead, and what happens to them. Mostly news stories having to do with death–nothing too gruesome. Mostly. Companion page to the website .
  • The Order of the Good Death : The FB companion page to the OGD website , which is about reconciling people with the concept of death–like the good old days. It’s also the home of the Ask a Mortician videos. You can see my post about those videos here .
  • ScaryDad : The FB page for the ScaryDad blog, whom I’ve interviewed .
ScaryDad is Scary

One of ScaryDad’s upcoming projects? Scary indeed.

 

Have I missed any out? What are you favourite FB pages?
